One of the many perks of being an IT Recruiter in Portland
Among the many perks of being an IT recruiter in Portland is the vibrant culinary scene. When it comes to wining and dining our candidates and clients, we get to pick from a bevy of world-class restaurants that charge a fraction of what they would in other cities.
If you’re one of the few remaining skeptics of Portland’s ascendance as the new culinary capital of the States, just watch local chef Vitaly Paley win Iron Chef America with a 10-course radish-based menu.
That’s right, radishes. Imagine what this guy could do with a full array of ingredients. Actually, don’t just imagine it – go to his restaurant and see for yourself (Paley’s Place, number five on our list).
So, without further ado, here’s our top 5 fine dining restaurants that you can get out the door for $40 per person or less while still having a glass of wine and an appetizer.
5 Fancy Restaurants in Portland That You Can Actually Afford
1. Le Pigeon [link to: lepigeon.com]
Invention meets tradition in the French fare at Le Pigeon – and both are delicious.
Chef Gabriel Rucker won the James Beard Rising Star Award in 2011 after three previous nominations. His win marked the first time a chef in Oregon received the honor, although it came as no surprise to locals.
Rucker changes the menu at Le Pigeon weekly, but the ever-present beef cheek Bourguignon and the foie gras anchor it with dependably delectable staples.
Framing its cuisine as “Novo-Peruvian,” Andina presents a contemporary twist on Peruvian-style tapas. It’s easy to make a meal out of appetizers here, although taking the plunge into full-on entrées is equally rewarding.
An assortment of ceviche offerings, yuca rellena (stuffed yuca, also known as cassava or manioc root), and a remarkable quinoa salad all make Andina truly special.
If you’re looking for the cutting-edge of fine dining in Portland, Castagna is a must. Castagna is one of the rare restaurants to embrace the molecular gastronomy movement. Where else can you get liquid nitrogen frozen yogurt on poached salmon?
Its offerings are whimsical, adventurous, and without fail make for a feast of the eyes as much as for the stomach.
Firehouse features made-for-sharing Italian cuisine from wood fired pizzas to classic pastas to an incredible hanger steak that you absolutely have to try if you go. Seriously. Promise us you’ll try it.
Pairing top-tier food with a sizable wine selection and a romantic ambience, Firehouse is a great place for families and couples alike.
5. Paley's Place
Okay, this one is the exception to our $40 rule—but it’s worth it!
Fresh local ingredients take on fine form at this locavore’s delight, from Dungeness crab risotto to a wide array of charcuterie to chanterelle ravioli. Paley’s Place is actually something of an institution in Portland’s culinary scene as one of the first evangelists for the local food movement.
If you haven’t yet been converted, Paley’s Place will show you the real virtue of sourcing locally in the Northwest: peerless flavor.
Got some other favorite haunts that should be on this list? We’re all tongues (get it?). Let us know in the comments below!
We'd like to take a break from our hard-hitting tech industry coverage to talk about something very near and dear to our hearts: beer!
We would suggest that our clients take software engineering and I.T. candidates we send them out for a beer at the below mentioned haunts. We are certain it would do everybody a little good!
Yes, friends, that delicious nectar of the gods is the connective tissue of Portland society, the great equalizer that brings together damp Northwestern hides of every stripe in the many breweries strewn throughout our fair city.
In between tracking down Ruby and Java developers, we like to remind ourselves just how spoiled we are by Portland’s vibrant beer culture. Nicknamed “Beervana,” there are 51 breweries operating in Portland—more than any other city in the world.
You can get good beer in Portland basically anywhere, but there are some truly exceptional breweries that are worth going out of your way for. That’s why we’ve gone out and collected five of the hidden gems that make Portland’s beer scene unique.
For the glory of the grain!
The 5 Best-Kept Secrets of the Portland Brewery Scene
1. Upright Brewing (North Portland)
Specialty: French/Belgian Farmhouse Beers
Finding Upright Brewing is no easy feat. Buried in the basement of a renovated commercial space in North Portland, it’s perhaps the most authentic “brewery-style” drinking experience you’ll ever have. The tasting room is lined with full barrels and shiny brewing equipment and makes no effort to hide that it’s a working brewery and barrel aging facility.
As a result, it’s only open weekends and Friday evenings and there’s basically no food to be had. So plan on eating before or after, but don’t let that dissuade you. Get a flight of their farmhouse beers and you will understand what dedication to a craft really means.
2. Cascade Brewing Barrel House (SE Portland)
Specialty: Sour Beers
Sour beers are not for everyone. This ancient Belgian style of beer is both one of the most traditional and one of the most unconventional. It’s also extremely rare, but a few devoted brewers are bringing sour beer back in a tidal wave of tart deliciousness.
Among those is Cascade Brewing, which is earning comparisons to the much-lauded Russian River. And with good reason: it’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted.
3. Captured By Porches (NE Portland, North Portland)
Captured by Porches is taking beer to the streets—cart style! In a city that’s been called the best metropolis for street food in America, the inevitable question is why not beer, too?
Based out of St. Helens, but rapidly colonizing Portland with a small platoon of beer wagons, Captured by Porches is a filling a vital need among the city’s 500+ food carts. Try their Blonde or their IPA for a refreshing compliment to the great cart fare surrounding each location.
4. Occidental Brewing Co (St. Johns next to Cathedral Park)
Specialty: German Beers
Occidental Brewing takes its cue from the originators of the “Purity Law.” The oldest food regulation in the history of the world, this German decree from the early 1500s dictates that beer should only be brewed from barley, hops and water.
Offering up the simple, carefully refined pleasures of Hefeweizen, Kölsch, Altbier and Dunkel, fans of German beer will not be disappointed at Occidental. Add to that a rotating selection of seasonal beers and a very friendly owner who’s happy to indulge questions and share home brewing tips, and you’ve got a winning combo.
5. Bailey's Tap Room [h2] (Downtown Portland)
Specialty: Everything Local
Okay, it’s not actually a brewery, but it’s one of the best purveyors of local beer in town. Bailey’s 20 rotating taps regularly include beers from nearby breweries like Lompoc, Breakside, Amnesia, Ninkasi, Burnside, and Widmer, plus offerings from West Coast breweries all the way from Seattle to Northern California. You’re guaranteed to find something to suit your tastes at Bailey’s Tap Room.

Take it from us, a Portland technical recruitment firm. We deal with a whole spectrum of technology recruitment, from technology executive search through IT staffing, and we know: An employer's brand makes a huge difference in attracting the best technology talent.
Positioning your company as a brand your employees are proud of not only helps you attract even more great people, it also increases the overall value of your brand.
Big technology companies in places like San Francisco or New York can tout their location and facilities. As Portland technology recruiters, we love Portland dearly, but we do know it's not a huge hub, and that most companies here don't have vast campuses filled with luxurious amenities.
So if you're a smaller tech company located in a medium-sized city, how do you set your employment brand apart in a competitive technology jobs market?
Four simple steps to effective employment branding
Many of the things you already do for your company can be leveraged to boost your employment brand.
1. Coordinate branding between marketing and human resources. While a brand can be expressed in different contexts, there should be just one brand. Make sure your human resources department and recruitment firm (if you have one) understand your branding, and have access to all your company's marketing and branding collateral. Have your HR and recruitment folks meet with your marketing people from time to time, so they can work together and make sure your brand is communicated in recruitment ads, at job fairs and in other recruitment efforts.
2. Develop your employer value proposition. Think about your communications to potential employees just as you think about communicating to any of your target markets. You want to communicate the value of your company as an employer, just as you communicate the value of your products and services. Make sure potential employees can quickly and easily find information and get a basic understanding of your company's working environment, culture, values, and management style.
3. Make sure all communications are on-message. From job postings to employer campaigns to online recruitment materials, ensuring consistency hammers home your brand voice and creates a sense of credibility.
4. Put your recruitment materials online. For all the time that tech companies put into developing compelling, beautifully designed recruitment materials, it's surprisingly rare for these to make it onto the company's website. You don't need to pay a developer to integrate them in a clever or interactive way - just link to your print materials in .pdf format. Choosing a job is a major, life-changing decision for anyone, and if you provide better information about your company, you'll get better qualified candidates.
Looking for some great examples?
Atlassian, a maker of product tracking software, has a terrific careers page. It's not just one page, either - there's a series of slides, each touting another great reason for working at the company. Anyone who spends even a few minutes on this page will understand that transparency, collaboration, and flexibility are some of Atlassian's most important values. Note: Every slide offers a "learn more" link to deeper information.
Jive Software, which develops social platforms for business, takes the cake for consumer and employer brand consistency by touching people's hunger for a better, more social working life. The company's introductory video frankly addresses the points we all encounter in the workplace, addressing them in a way that's consistent with Jive's brand.
Google has a reputation for extensive - and expensive - perks. But a blog post by Google's top executive for People Operations, Laszlo Bock, points out that most of what really makes Google special doesn't cost a thing. Bock offers suggestions for ways that small and medium-sized companies, too, can make employees feel valued, special and committed to the company's mission.

On July 7th we (my wife Heidi and I )participated in the Hagg Lake Tri-athalon. This was a return to the event we did as a company for our 10 yr anniversary. It was an absolutely incredible day with crystal clear skies and water temperature that were close to 70.
We did the sprint this year which turned out to be a good distance for us:
- .5mi swim
-12.5mi bike ride
Both of us felt great during the race and other than wasting time swimming in the wrong direction while blinded by the sun we finished without a hiccup.
The best part was bumping into my friend Steve Dunn who I met 8 years ago when I recruited him to Hanna Andersson for their CIO executive search. Steve and his wife were racking their bikes just across from me as we got settled before the start of the race. With some pre-race butterflies we did not get much of chance to connect until after the race. When we did we learned that this was their fourth or fifth tri already this year. Both him and his wife have grown to love the Portland area and are thriving in the outdoor/active culture. It was so great to see Steve and to know that he really had found a home in Portland and with Hanna after 8 yrs.
One of the many wonderful things about our field is that we do get to introduce people to this great area and all that it offers. For our client they got a great executive for the last eight years and I have to say after chasing Steve the entire race I think his acclimation process is complete!
As I left I began to ponder whether or not I should send my technical recruiters out to local tri-athalons to find good talent, maybe so. Great running into you Steve! :-)
The answer to the fictitious company's problem (described in blog Lifting the Hood of a Technical Recruiting agency Service) is simple in theory and was provided as an answer in response to the first blog. Bring accountability and motivation to the table by retaining a firm.
Sure, creating an economic motive for your partners to focus on your languishing hard to fill jobs is a step in the right direction.
Having spent a long time as a recruiter and as a recruiting manager, on the other side of the fence; inside the business, I know there is a resistance to doing this. For the sake of your business and talent needs some positions require a different approach. When talent wars heat up for software developers, I.T professionals, or experience with the latest tools, like Salesforce or Visualforce, it is difficult, regardless of the talent of your internal recruiting team, to headhunt alone. The unemployment rate, reported earlier this year for software engineering and electrical engineering is believed to be 4.6 and 5.4%, respectively. On the heels of the deepest recessions, in recent U.S history, some economists would suggest that that is full employment. In other words, anybody who wants a job has one. A company must have great partners to help them in this highly competitive market.
Internal recruiters are often given a bad-rap because of poor "passive candidate" resume flow. Having been in that seat, I believe it is less about their own ability to perform hard-core headhunting vs. being bogged down by an overwhelming amount of employment process and legalese around candidate tracking. Heap on top of that a requisition load of over 20 job types and it becomes impossible to be disciplined and pragmatic about constantly generating passive candidates. Internal recruiting teams are often not set up for success.
So why not retain just any firm? Your partner has to be set up to do it right to move the needle. Most agencies are primarily modeled for making money on the "low hanging fruit" as it makes the most economic sense. These firms are not trained or prepared to be a true partner in the retained search model. They lack the training and understanding to implement a search that is creative, is time consuming, can be tedious, that requires discipline, and that is modeled off of proven methodology, for a search and selection of talent. Additionally, they have never spent a day on the corporate side thus they lack the understanding of all the moving parts within a matrixed organization.
Talent once again is getting scarce, (see blog… pendulum has shifted….again blog)
While I believe strongly that using firms in a contingency model is a needed and valuable method of finding talent for a company it is important to think of the motivators and service when your jobs have remained unfilled and the business is suffering. Here in Portland Oregon there are few technical recruiting agencies equipped to perform both very well. Please look us up when the time comes.
Bar food is stereotypically portrayed as greasy burgers and fries. Portland is one of the rare cities in the country that you can find a vegan bar which serves fresh, organic food. On a rainy Sunday afternoon, I ventured out to the Sweet Hereafter Bar to sample the clean eats and cold brews.
Being a Sunday afternoon, the Hereafter was relatively empty. Unlike most bars, most of the patrons ordered food first, and then drinks if they preferred. Most of the bars and breweries in the Portland area serve some of the best plates in town. The vegan menu at hereafter focused on a variety of tofu dishes. Among the choices were a Vietnamese tofu bahn mi sandwich, Jamaican jerk tofu with rice, and a Buffalo “chicken” sandwich made with meat substitute. My friend and I ordered two dishes and split them. The food was warm and fresh, though not exceptional. However, the large beer and spirits selection allowed us to have a beverage that complemented our meal perfectly.
The Hereafter is located on Belmont Street and is very near other restaurants and bars, making it ideal as a late night attraction. The outside seating at Hereafter also looks welcoming for the sunnier days. Wunderland Nickel Aracade is also located a block down the road, allowing you to wait out any level of sobriety you might find yourself in by playing video games. In short, the Sweet Hereafter is an ideal meet up location to start of the night with some food and drinks, before letting the evening sweep you away. Nice area if you are one of our candidates in town interviewing and want to experience a great part of the city.
This blog entry represents a counter argument for using a service my company sells. Trust I know the narrative that follows will be controversial within my own industry. However, I believe that it will show flaws with one of the services we sell and commit to provide here at EnGn and in that self reflection we become better . There are some answers and solutions that I will hi-light that will be a differentiator in subsequent blogs. Certainly the intent is not to marginalize one of the very services that will put food on the table for me and my colleagues. The true intent is to provide visibility into a primary continency staffing agency business model. Which means a firm only gets paid when they find someone for the job. It works very well in providing needed talent for many of our customers but also can be defeating on far more difficult to fill roles. The learning opportunity is for businesses/clients to recognize the signs of a failed search when they are showing up, what to do about it, and how other services can meet their needs.
I believe many who have not had the chance to fundamentally wrap their head around the primary business model; that permeates the recruiting industry, misunderstands the primary drivers and pitfalls. Understanding those variables, basic economics, and business motivators goes a long way in clearing up the challenges of the standard contingent (pay only when a hire is made) model. My wonderful wife indicates that I can take too much time to get to the point, nevertheless the stories I tell will illuminate the conflict in the plot. So let the storytelling begin .
Please imagine a profitable, private, and small to mid-sized business named XTECH, located in the Portland Metropolitan area. Their exact location is neither super attractive nor disappointing but rather non-descript in downtown. XTECH has a decent employment brand, if recognized at all, but what they are known for is hiring really solid talent, in other words their “bar” is high and anybody going there will work with smart people. They use some of the latest software development technology (but not all) within the Microsoft stack and are an agile SDLC shop. Their compensation is on the competitive side but not in the top 15% percentile, bonuses again are competitive, when paid out. XTECH also has middle of the road Health care benefits. Their product is an interesting, complex, data driven, web native, n-tiered architected application. Let’s imagine XTECH opens two positions, an Architect and a Sr. Mobile Applications developer. To fill these positions they sign up, at first, 3 agencies to compete with each other. Each agency is contracted at 15% of base salary. A hefty sum for sure considering the roles could, and probably will, demand a salary of over $110K. XTECH waits and initially receives 6-10 candidates out of the gates in the first 2 weeks. None of the candidates fit after an initial pass whether on resume review or brief phone interviews; another 2 weeks pass and a few candidates trickle in. It is clear these are hard to fill positions. 2 more weeks and there are no new candidates. The business is reeling because they need the positions filled and a month and a half has already passed. What has happened?
Here is what happened and why agencies can get a bad name and positions languish unfilled. They stopped working on it!! Simple business economics rooted in the contingent business model does not allow them to keep applying time and resources. These firms are working for free. The more resources they put towards the hard to fill position the more unprofitable they become. Those first candidates were the low hanging fruit (Monster, Dice, etc.) Everything after that takes true "Head Hunting" and mandates a plan, discipline, persistence, time, and money. The 3 original agencies were forced, not because they are bad firms, financially to focus on positions that were mathematically more likely to fill and earn money. Sure, XTECH could keep adding agencies and even up the percentage of salary regarding the fee. It won’t change the problem. There is a chance they could get their hires over a longer period of time but the time to fill can be very limiting and expensive to their business. This company is a victim of common supply and demand challenge seen as the talent wars for technical expertise shifts. So what is the answer? Stay tuned for XTECH 2 soon to be released.
October 4, 2011
Residents of Portland learn to appreciate sunshine. Rain and clouds are staples of the Portland climate, so people are used to walking around in the rain (remember not to carry an umbrella unless you want to stick out like a sore thumb). However, there is always a destination in mind. Portlandians can usually be found huddled inside coffee shops, restaurants, and breweries during the extended rainy season. However, when the sun does peek out, the streets are immediately filled with crowds soaking in each ray they can. On a day like this, our office took a small break from sourcing technical candidates to enjoy one of the many scenic golf courses in the area. Not being golfers, Aaron (our music aficionado) and I decided to enjoy the sunshine in another Portland activity: eating at one of the boutique restaurants around town. The sun influenced our choice and we found ourselves at the tropical and exotic Mee Sen Thai Restaurant
. Mee Sen
is like many of the restaurants in town, in the sense that the owners try to give visitors a holistic authentic experience. Mee Sen
has an open garage-style door that allows the sun to shine in, and guests to walk in and choose their own seat. The seats are wooden benches, and the water cups are made to look like cheap tin cups. The idea of this décor is to make the restaurant seem like a road side restaurant in Vietnam. In my experiences around the world, the best food tends to come from simple road side venues. Although these additions do not enhance the flavors of the food itself, Mee Sen
definitely sets the tone of the experience with the design and décor. Mee Sen
has no need to try and fool their patrons into enjoying their food, as the meal we enjoyed there was amongst the best Thai food in Portland (which is saying something). Aaron had the Beef Pad Thai that he described as “outstanding,” as the flavors were balanced because the spices didn’t overwhelm each individual ingredient. This observation brings light to the fact that a truly great chef needs to understand a dish is made flavorful by intelligent moderation, not flooding the palette. My tofu Pad Kee Mao was also superb, and the ingredients were noticeably of a high quality. Before I left, I peeked at the happy hour and dessert menu. The reasonable prices and the exotic choices immediately piqued my interest, and I will definitely be visiting Mee Sen again as soon as possible. The restaurant is located in the culturally growing Mississippi Avenue district, and is open for lunch and dinner.
